Thread: fin nipper

  1. #1

    Default fin nipper

    i believe i have 2 males and 1 female. one male is very large the female is smaller and the other male is smaller. the smaller male is a green tiger barb. the other two are regular tiger barbs.

    i state all of this because i don't know how much it matters.

    the two traditional tiger barbs have torn up fins...really really torn up...bad. so i looked at the green barb and his are fine. so he must be the aggressive little turd in the tank. so i moved him to my now empty 10 gallon (thank you dead lobster!)

    question being...with the two barbs that have the torn up fins...will their fins grow back? it's not the spines in the fins...those look fine for the most part...but the membrane that is really destroyed. does that grow back?

    should be okay if it's just them treat the fins with melafix.... It will help the fins grow back faster and healthier.,......
